The phrase ‘it fits like a glove’ really should apply to your golf glove because if it is too tight or too loose it will affect the quality of your grip and ultimately your performance.

It's important that players have a good grip of the club so they can make a confident swing without hesitation.

How we test golf gloves
In terms of testing golf gloves we should say our process is similar to all the other golf gear reviews we produce in that manufacturers cannot pay for a good review, and we tell it how we see it.
We seek to try and be as comprehensive as possible in testing and reviewing the product which means we have used it over a number of rounds, in different conditions, because this often gave us great insight into things like durability, fit, quality and so on.
We should say that everyone in the Golf Monthly team are golfers at a variety of levels which we feel gives an honesty and integrity to the reviews we produce. For more information on how Golf Monthly tests its products (opens in new tab), click here.
What to look for in a golf glove
You may not think the golf glove is that important compared to other pieces of equipment however it really is, after all, it is the only part of the body that remains connected with the club throughout the swing. So what are the things you need to think about when looking into purchasing a new golf glove? Well below are some factors and pieces of advice to consider.
Which hand? - For the beginners out there, a golfer who plays right-handed will typically wear a golf glove on their left hand. This is because the left hand is the lead hand in the swing provided the player has a conventional grip. Golfers who play left-handed typically wear a glove on their right hand.

Type - First things first, know what type of glove you want. You may be after premium leather model which will perform totally differently to a synthetic, or even a wet weather model. These do different things and more importantly feel different so have a think about what you like to feel when wearing a golf glove and hoose acordingly.
Material - The material will also be important too. The top premium leather models are designed to feel soft whilst also giving you good feel of the grip during the swing. They are essentially designed to be like a second skin. Some gloves also have synthetic parts on them which are designed to offer more stretch especially along the knuckles. These synthetic gloves also might be more durable than the leather designs. Finally the wet weather gloves are more about protection than feel. The material on most all-weather models offers more grip the wetter they get so if you play in an area with a lot of rain, definitely consider a model designed to deal with it.
Fit - We can hear you asking how should a glove fit? Well the golf glove should feel like a second skin with no excess material either across the palm of the hand or at the end of the fingers. Make sure there’s a snug fit across the palm and there’s no loose material at the end of the fingers. But you also don’t want a glove to be so tight that it feels like it’s cutting off the blood supply. You should be able to stretch your fingers and make a ball with your fist without the glove pulling or over-stretching.
Is it necessary to wear a golf glove?
When out on the course, golf gloves are not required. However, it is highly recommended that you do wear one to maximise your game. They provide you with ample more grip than if you weren't wearing one and, as a result, you can commit to your shots more as you have more confidence.
Should a golf glove be loose or tight
A proper fitting golf glove should fit like a second skin. This means that it is tight across the palm and fingers, with no loose material. You should also have no extra material at the top of your fingers, if you do, you may want to go down a size.
